This spring, Lark Lane is gaining a fabulous vibrant independent vintage clothing store, The Retro Room. Once open, they will offer a variety of beautiful sustainable jewellery and clothing from chunky knits to eclectic dresses and flamenco skirts. These vintage pieces will definitely be adding a pop of colour to shoppers wardrobes.
The proud owner of The Retro Room, Kate, previously ran a different business but was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease which meant she had to take time off from work to adjust to life with the condition. To support herself finacially during this time she started selling her clothes on Depop and making crystal jewellery. This led her to take part in various vintage fairs and markets. Over time, Kate developed a passion for vintage clothing and this kick started her new career path, which she now absolutely adores.
Before the idea of relocating to the lane, Kate was previously based in the Red Brick Market where she stayed for 5 years. She always knew she wanted a place of her own “I’ve always wanted to be on The Lane, I have been manifesting” she said.
The Retro Room is officially opening its doors on 10 April, so be sure to head down to The Lane and show some love and grab yourself some new vintage garms! You will also be greeted with a glass of complimentary fizz on arrival.
Over on their Instagram, they have a competition running until the 9 April where you can win £50 to spend in store, details are on their page to enter @theretroroomlarklane
The Retro Room can be found at 95 Lark Lane, Liverpool L17 8UP
